Barber Cut Dublin 2016 | The Opium Rooms

This Sunday, 2nd October 2016, Barber Cut Dublin brings to Ireland, the first ever barber educational conference in The Opium Rooms, Wexford Street, Dublin. Founded by barber Sam Donnelly and organiser Keiron Black, the one-day event will feature some of the biggest names in the business of barbering, men’s hairdressing and grooming.

Supported by ‘Dublin – A Breath of Fresh Air’, the event will showcase all aspects of traditional and modern barbering by some of the world’s most talented professionals. The conference aims to increase technical ability and develop creative excellence amongst the barbering industry.

Attendees will experience some of the world’s most skilful barbers such as Schorem (NL), Andrew of Andrew Does Hair (U.S), Donnie Hawley (U.S), and Menspire (UK) who will share their years of knowledge and expertise of barbering to motivate and inspire those of all ages and levels of experience within the industry.


The Life Time Achievement Award, one of the most prestigious global awards to ever be handed to a barber, will be presented by Schorem. This award is highly regarded in the barbering trade as it recognises the creative contributions of outstanding artistic significance and customer service to the barbering industry.

Speaking about why Dublin was the location of choice to host this international event, Sam Donnelly says “Barbering and men’s hairdressing is undeniably one of the fastest growing markets in the industry and we have some of the best barbers in the world right here in Ireland; so to be able to share that with our friends from all over the globe, hosting the event in Dublin proved to be the obvious choice. In addition to 500 flights into the capital city daily as well as some of the best hotels, B&BS and hostels in Europe, Dublin is the ideal location for an international gathering such as Barber Cut.”

With live music and Dj’s playing into the night, Barber Cut Dublin is an event not to be missed.

Tickets are available to purchase from at €50.
